Begun in 2001 by Dr. Chris Leatt, who began developing neck brace prototypes after a fellow rider's death. After several years, the first production brace was introduced; its popularity among motocrossers increased rapidly. Award-winning, with encouragements from current and former pros, Leatt took off. In 2010 the company's first bicycle-specific brace, the DBX, was introduced. The Leatt brace is worn by championship winning pro riders, becoming an integral part of rider gear. Today the company produces braces and protective gear for riders of all stripes.
Leatt is serious about its development of protective equipment. Research studies, statistics, histories and white papers are all freely available from the company's website. Its testing methodologies are publicly shared, underscoring the earnest nature of the company and the seriousness of its products.
The braces are the company's flagship product. Today the range includes braces for motocross, downhill and freeriding bicyclists, street motorcyclists, winter sports, and motor track. Design is exceptional; offering extensive crash protection, seamless pairing with full-face helmets, and fitted for high levels of comfort, they are very wearable, an easy addition to protective kit.
Helmets are available for motocross and off-road cycling. Incorporating the latest in materials, they are lightweight and well-ventilated, providing excellent protection and cooling. Protection is provided against direct and rotational impact forces.
